While global warming is the most significant environmental issue of our time, it receives little attention in the Canadian school system. This project is developing an integrated learning resource based on British Columbia’s Grade 6 prescribed learning outcomes in Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and Language Arts. The learning resource will include lesson plans for teachers in humanities as well as sciences, and it will enhance learning through the coverage of common themes across different subjects.
